I am currently a sophomore assisting in a research lab. I have had the opportunity to work on my own project and will soon be published on one paper. If I continue here, I will most certainly have more projects and more papers. I like the research, but I also have an opportunity to be a peer mentor for freshman next year. I feel like this is also an excellent opportunity. I love working with people and having the opportunity to have an impact on people's lives, but there is little chance that I can do both without screwing up my GPA. Should I continue in the lab? or take this mentoring position? Both will look good, but is one more valuble than the other? Should I follow my heart or my head?
